Brings back memories to the times in WoW when cloth prices were so low you could actually make a 100% profit to craft them into First Aid bandages and vendoring those..
This sounds like you can't sell cartel market items to a vendor either.

I can list the unbound items on the GTN but the market is so flooded that I get nothing out of it if it sells at all.

Weather an item is bound or not, if it has that cartel market symbol on it, I simply cannot sell it to a vendor.

Again, I can list them on the GTN once the bond timer has expired but selling them to a vendor doesn't work even though I can see the vendor price.

Am I bugged, is everyone bugged or is this intentional?
I would imagine it is intentional....People just payed $5 to get the crap that sells on the GTN for 5k. I think they expected items to be more valuable. If they want to make the Cash Shop work it has to have a good reward ingame to players.

It is intentional (Bioware post on the French forums about this).

The reason is that the items are so useless that not even the NPC vendors want them.

Actually, its not stupid. If you could sell the stuff to vendors then CS would be flooded with tickets from people who "accidently" sold their stuff to the vendor. Then CS looks like jerks if they dont reimburse every single person that sold his useless pixels. Its one thing if its free pixels, its another when people pay extra for those pixels.

Umm, isn't that why you can buy back stuff you sold to the vendor?

Very true, I have accidentally sold something and was able to buy it back 15 minutes later.

Not being able to vendor this stuff is a stupid move on BW's part. Like many people I nor have a cargo hold full of useless crap and, as a result, I won't be buying any more cartel packs. If I could actually vendor the stuff I don't want, I would happily keep buying them.

To add insult to injury, the stuff you cannot sell actually has a value quoted in the tooltip. Stupid.

We were joking in TS the other night that this was their way of getting us to buy more inventory slots
